Living And Dining Rooms
With this type of decor, the living room should become a sophisticated and laid-back space that will become the ultimate hangout for being with friends, or for spending a quiet evening at home. Stick with colors that are neutral so the natural, raw elements of the room will be able to stand out more. Choose large area rugs, extra seating and throw pillows in colors like blacks, whites and grays. There is also the option to brighten the room up by adding greenery and lush plants to add another natural element and add color to the room. Metal is also important in an industrial decor theme. Copper or brass accents can be added to lighting, and copper pendants will give off a very bold statement that guests will immediately notice.
The industrial bedroom is a modern and cozy hideaway that is designed for relaxation and rest. This is why it is important to consider where sleeping will occur within the design of the room. Each part of the bedroom should be uncomplicated and inviting, and this begins by selecting a bed that has a low-profile bed frame. Also, consider softening the room by layering several area rugs in the space. This will help to freshen the room and will give it a more lived-in appearance. A sliding barn door can also act as the perfect industrial divider in the room if the space needs to have separate sleeping/home office areas. The divider can also be used to cover the entrance to the master bath or act as a cover for the entire bedroom space.
The walls of the bedroom can be adorned with abstract prints or black and white photos. Both options will help give the room culture. However, if wall space is limited, a bookshelf can be used to showcase keepsakes, photos and souvenirs.
